A modern new home for one of my favorite clients.
A new house built and ready for an interior.
One of my all time favorite clients called me to say he had built a new house and wanted me to get going on creating and executing the interior.
The architect had a very clear vision for this house. It has some 'throw back' elements to yesteryear designs.
We had the knotted pine ceiling detail, smooth cork based floor and pale grey aluminium doors and frames to work with as our starting point.
We chose to focus on very muted colors and textures, allowing the entire space to blend and let ones eye move freely through the entire room at first glance.
Leather, suede, textured linens, brass and natural elements were incorporated into this room to
We looked to the location in nature to guide us. The house is on the cusp of a nature reserve and surrounded by fijnbos and natural stone.
We chose natural dyed linens, chunky textures and a hint of botanical prints with a modern interpretation.
We chose contemporary elements for this room.
I chose structured occasional chairs to contrast a comfortable sofa. The modern custom made corner standing lamp introduced a beautiful Beech timber element that worked well with a duco sprayed daybed upholstered in a reloaded Kelim carpet.
